We do, and have had for about the last 10 years. Unfortunately, they have been the starting 2 guard.
This bench player also gets paid about $16M more than our entire bench combined.
So did I
Why would someone relegated to the bench on a sub-500 team deserve an award? Sure, that's a good run of 5 games.
This is fire though? Not happening.
in fact one could make a salient argument that he is a terrible bench player because their record is so bad. empty stats. I would rather have the Griz' bench than RW et al on LAL. It's a no brainer Russ has hunted stats his whole career and he does work his ass off to do it, no question there.
My point is that I think there will eventually be a gap between 6 and 7 cuz a couple teams will pull away from the pack. I want to be one of those teams!
No Harden and no Embiid, down by 21 in Sacramento, the 76ers come back and win 129-127 after Harrison Barnes missed his first of three free throws, then intentionally missed his last one with 2.9 seconds left in the game.
Sabonis got his hand on the rebound but could only slap it at the backboard after which it fell to the ground amidst a scrum as time ran out.
Are you wanting me to compare Russ’ numbers to number Nas MIGHT get?
And produces $16M more. Please continue to defend what you call a “bench” that we have here in Portland. This should be fun.
Nevermind. We have better players coming off the Blazers bench. What was I thinking.
I pray we someday have a player coming off our bench putting up those kind of “empty stats”. I wish players on our bench would work their ass off trying to hunt down such numbers. Maybe we’d be above .500?
I never claimed such. Nor did I claim any of them might be getting sixth man honors. You really believe he is deserving of that? Asinine.
I said he might win it.
hmmmm...ya think so?
Westbrook vs Blazer bench 5-man rotation (Winslow-Sharpe-Eubanks-Little-Watford):
Points: Westbrook 16.1....Blazer Bench 30.5
Rebounds: Westbrook 6.5....Blazer Bench 17.7
Assists: Westbrook 7.7....Blazer Bench 7.2
Winshares: Westbrook 0.8....Blazer Bench 5.8
Salary: Westbrook 47.06M....Blazer Bench 17.6M
Now just think if the Blazers had Russ, Sharp, Eubanks, & Little. All coming off the bench.
I don't really care about money. It ain't my money they're spending. I just might buy more tickets to that group though. Just sayin?
great...trade Dame for Westbrook and the Blazer bench would be stronger!
Who said anything about trading Dame?
What was said was “ I wish we had a player like that on our bench”. This is simple stuff really.
Are you now going to talk about contracts and cap? That isn’t what the conversation is about?
For some reason that made me miss CJ Elleby. He was a terrible player in a lot of ways but you could see he was busting his ass every minute he was on the floor.
Bro you need a hobby.
